This property was dirty and run down. As you walk into the kitchen there was a terrible smell of wet dog and upon walking upstairs the property stank of cigarette smoke (this included the beds). The cutlery/crockery/glassware was dirty in the cupboards and there were dog hair all over the floors (even bits of sweet packets under the nest of tables). In the single bedroom somebody else's clothes were hung in the wardrobe??? The toilet brush was VERY dirty (I will say no more) and the banister turned a cloth black when we tried to clean it as it was sticky to touch. The overall furnishings were tired and need to be replaced (saggy sofas, chipped plates, damaged bath and stained wallpaper). This cottage is set in a lovely location and beside a great bakery (over the road) but needs a complete revamp to bring it up to basic standards. Very disappointed.
A very well located property in a beautiful village. Situated next to a convenience store and sandwich shop you have everything you need on the doorstep, and the New Inn next door but one is superb. Parking is available here if you have a nice chat with the landlord. Their food is excellent and the meal deal hour 5-6pm is great value.
3 miles from Pickering, 17 miles from Scarborough this house is in a great location. The kitchen is downstairs and all other rooms are upstairs, this is kind of like a bug that above a shop. Spacious rooms, two sitting areas, two dining areas. I'm sure we will be back!
Public footpath and woods walking area just over the road, children's play park only 2 minute walk away.
Delightful accommodation which is cosy, comfortable, and practical in a stunning location. The owners have obviously put a lot of consideration into making this rental a home from home. It is well looked after and spotlessly clean, spacious with the 3 bedrooms and large living room.
What sets Chestnuts apart from other places is the attention to detail- the pot of herbs outside of the kitchen door, the sofa in the snug, the coloured windows through which the sun streams, the comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, and the warm welcome for dogs.
The location is fabulous with 2 excellent pubs on the doorstep, friendly local shops which also act as unofficial tourist information guides (what they don't know isn't worth knowing!), a stunning village pond, a cheerful butcher, and a great pizza place.
We will be back.
